I finally saw adds for the runflats sunone mentioned earlier ... Goodyear
Aquasteel Runflat tires, ya can drive 50 miles IIRC with no air pressure.

But I also saw something else on the news ... Sprint is going to put out
(or has put out) an "on-demand" phone service thingy ... a hub that lets
you have telephone, fax, data, video-conferencing all over one phone line
/AND/ and upto 100x current speeds ... didn't someone say that the
probablem with trying to get the Matrix today wasn't internal computer
speed, it was connection speed? there ya go ... now you've got your
Telecomm ... throw in your Quantum computers ... all you need is the
cybernetic jacks ... anyone care to take bets on how soon until the
Matrix is born?
